Techivation launches T-Compressor, an easy-to-use serial compression plugin with multiple compressor modes for your music productions.

British plugin developer Techivation has released T-Compressor. The launch of T-Compressor is the second major launch for Techivation since T-De-Esser Pro which is a free de-esser plugin for taming harch sibilances in vocals.

T-Compressor features multiple compressor modes and a serial chain.

Techivation T-Compressor

What makes T-Compressor somewhat unique are the multiple compressors it features – boasting three compressors in one plugin! As a result, you can insert just one instance of a T-Compressor and create a self-sufficient serial compression chain. The plugin is designed with shaping the dynamics of any signal in a creative way in mind.

At the top of the interface sits a bypass switch, a switch that allows you to choose which of the three compresses in the chain you want to work with, and an A/B test selection.

For accurate level monitoring, T-Compressor features a VU meter (Volume Unit) which is often more accurate than a peak meter. This is the case because a volume unit is a metering tool that provides a calculated estimate of how loud a channel/bus/signal actually is in relation to how we naturally perceive loudness. However, the VU meter can be switched to a digital graph representation with a toggle switch.

Techivation T-Compressor is a versatile compressor plugin with a VU meter, generic compressor controls, four compressor modes and a serial chain of up to 3 compressors.

Below the level meter sits four switches that allow you to choose between different compression modes. These include Clean, Crispy, Warm, and Thick. Here is a description of the different modes by Technivation:

  • Clean – The compressor sounds fully transparent when the “Clean” mode is selected. 
  • Crispy – This mode adds more brightness and unique colour to the sound.
  • Warm – It adds warmth and an analog vibe to the sound when selected.
  • Thick – This mode helps make the sound more open and three-dimensional, as well as bringing dull sounds to life.

Finally, beneath the mode selection sits a simple attack, threshold, compression amount knob, and makeup gain control.


Serial compression

Serial compression is fantastic for applying specific dynamic range adjustments without over-compressing them. For example, you can dial in subtle compression settings across 4 different compressors rather than applying lots of compression with one. Now, T-Compressor empowers you to make essential compression decisions with a level of creativity that gives your sound a unique flare.

T-Compressor allows you to add up to 3 compressor instances in the same plug-in unit and have full control over 3 of them on a single plug-in window! You can choose through them like a web browser and quickly make adjustments.
